Blizzard Trademarks "Warlords of Draenor" - WoW Expansion
Blizzard just trademarked "Warlords of Draenor" in New Zealand. It was then registered in Australia shortly after.

  • Computer game software, computer game discs, downloadable computer game software, computer game software downloadable from a global computer network, interactive multimedia computer game program; downloadable electronic game software for use on portable electronic devices such as mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs.
  • Entertainment services, namely, providing on-line computer games; providing on-line non-downloadable computer games that may be accessed via a global computer network; providing online news and information in the field of computer games.

It's also worth mentioning that warlordsofdraenor.com was registered a month ago.

I do realize that we had a lot of fun times with trademarks in the past (*cough* Dark Below *cough*) but let's just say that on a personal level I'm pretty confident about this one. I'll leave the speculation up to you guys until Blizzcon.

A return to Draenor basically means an Outlands revamp\expansion. I imagine they will update the pre-existing zones and add new zones via the portals scattered throughout Outlands.
    Why not just call it return of dark legion or something. Name that ppl who don't care about lore could recognize.

    The planet of Draenor. I think you know that. Or you are being intellectually dishonest.

    I doubt it will be the same as cata. They will likely have two versions of outlands.. since there is hardly any room to put more zones in. So, I assume we will go back to a lvl 100 only version. Which means less time devoted to the landmass since it already exists

    Some of my favorite "just cruising around the game" moments happened in Nagrand, Netherstorm, and IQD. I'd love to see a return to similar places; without *just* rehashing Outland.

    We all know Outland needs a proper restructuring. There's so much real estate that no one even touches out there anymore. I know a few times in the last two years, I ran Hellfire... then spammed Dungeon Finder till I could hit Nagrand... then stayed there till Northrend.

    I'd love a revamp, that also adds more content/explorable land.

    I pretty much won't be convinced of any idea before the official blizzcon announcement. Of interest where are all the Dark Below fanboys, crying in a corner or praying to metzen for it to not be true?

    Jaina is an interesting character even without sleeping with retards and/or losers.

    I very much doubt you're going to see any changes to Outland. This will be it own special little area like Northrend or Pandaria.

    Eh, not impressed. So instead of Garrosh Hellscream the new main antagonist will instead be Grom Hellscream? How original... Another expansion set in Outland? No thanks. Talk about rehashing content. Will the expansion after that let us return to Northrend?

    Sure you'll let us speculate.... trust me, there'll be a leak up next week. And it'll be the legion, not that time travel crap we've been hearing about.
